    More likely: 1,000 yards for BJGE, 100 rec for Welker, or 200 tkls for Mayo?

    Which is more likely to happen with 2 games remaining in the regular season?  BJGE is standing right now at 824 yards.  He needs to average 88 yards to break that mark.  Welker has 83 receptions and could break 100 by averaging 8.5 over the last 2.  Mayo has a league leading 164 combined tackles and could break 200 by averaging 18 for the last 2 games.

    BJGE needs just 72 more yards to break 1,000 for the year.

    Welker only caught 3 and it looks he won't be hitting 100.  His 86 are 4th best in the NFL.

    Mayo made 7 tackles and is far from 200 for the season.  It's good to see him as one of the league's best LB's.

    Welker really hurt his chances with 3 drops yesterday.  I hope Benny gets his 1,000.  We haven't had a 1,000 rusher since Dillion in '04.  It's a contract year for him and what a great story starting out 5th on the depth chart to leading rusher for the hopefully soon to be SB Champs.

    He is a restricted FA, I am sure the Patriots will offer him at least a 2nd round tender

    I would love to see him get that 1,000 yards. Miami is #6 in rush defense giving up 95 yards a game.

    I don't think I'd want to risk losing him for a 2nd round pick.  I say give him a 1st round tender and pay the man.  He deserves it.  Basically we should give him Fred Taylor's money.  We don't want to risk losing him over $700K.  BJGE is the 19th leading rusher in the NFL.  The below chart was for 2010, not sure what the amounts would be for 2011.

    Player with THREE Accrued Seasons

    Right of First Refusal — $1,101,000
    Right of First Refusal + Pick in player’s original draft round — $1,101,000*
    Right of First Refusal + Second-Round Draft Pick — $1,684,000*
    Right of First Refusal + First-Round Draft Pick — $2,396,000*

    I'm sure coach will empty the bench early on Sunday so 1000 maybe difficult.

    My bad, I mixed it up....I would give him the max for 3 accrued seasons!

    Mayo needs 31 tackles in the final game to reach 200 and Welker needs 14 catches. My money in on BJGE ;)

    Law Firm has done well and I think deserves the 1k yards this year. I don't know what I'd tender him at, but he's the type of no nonsense runner you love to have on your team, that you can win with. There was a stat the other game on how he's not fumbled yet in his career...amazing, hope he doesn't have his first in the playoffs.

    Interesting.....

    How football is changing: There might be only three backs--Turner, SJackson, Mendenhall--who AVERAGE 20 carries a game this year. Amazing.

    With how easily RB's get injured it would probably be not smart to play the heck out of the Pats best running back to achieve some arbitrary benchmark.  If he breaks one off early to get close then fine, if not then he can try next year.

    Sorry, but the Miami game is now for the love of the sport only, and for major players to get a bit of practice in.  None of these nice round number milestones are worth 1/100 of a playoff victory.

    Sit the Law Firm.  The Patriots are a little thin at RB right now.  Give Fred Taylor a bit of practice to knock the rust off.  Find out who Thomas Clayton is.

    Sit Wes Welker, just because.  Put Brian Hoyer and Taylor Price in.

    Sit Mayo.  Linebackers take a bit of pounding too.

    Rocky, there is nothing wrong with your thinking.  A second round tender is still a high price to pay for an undrafted player who could be more of a product of our great system than he is a true elite runner.  The Pats could tender him at the 2nd round level but I think we run the risk of losing him and a guy that doesn't fumble and averages 4.4 ypc is worth keeping.  Basically we'd be paying him Fred Taylor money and Fred hasn't done squat for us.

    Paul, I tend to agree with you.  It would be a shame to snap our NFL record Regular Season Home Winning Streak but I think we'd all take another banner over this record.  Besides losing to MIA helps the OAK pick cause should they win and Miami loses, we'd drop a spot.

    I agree that getting him at the 1st round tender is probably best. I suspect though that they'll try to get a 3 or 4 year deal done. It's great that they got a deal done with Woodhead for a cheap extra couple of years.
